Halls: not just
for first year students

Every year hundreds of second, third and fourth-year students move into halls because they like the hassle-free living and sociable lifestyle that you get in our halls community. Most returning students apply to share a flat with a group of friends and move into blocks specifically allocated for returners.

A great choice of rooms

With seven halls to choose from in Derby and lots of different room types, our University accommodation gives you maximum choice. From our en suite premium rooms with their trendy decor and their double beds to our great value standard rooms, there's a room to suit all budgets and tastes. To help you choose the room that's right for you, check out our 360-degree tours.

Since moving to University halls of residence, I’ve met incredible people and the experience has been amazing - so much so that I’ve applied to live with a few of my friends next year in halls.

Living costs 

Most hall contracts are 42 weeks, while all private ones tend to be 51 or 52 weeks. This makes annual hall contracts significantly cheaper over the duration of the academic year. In addition, there are no retainers to pay or guarantors needed to apply for halls. You only have to make a small upfront cost to secure your room and you won't need to pay any fees until you have received your first maintenance loan instalment.
